Human Resource

We respect our employees and aim to create a work environment where employees can work cheerfully and enthusiastically, create a nurturing work culture, and promote a balance between corporate, social, and private life within that environment and culture.

Fostering human resources

We have put in place systems and training programs for our personnel as we strive to achieve a corporate climate that can best reflect the skills possessed by and challenges faced by our employees in our management and business practices. Our training program includes stratified training by job level and years of service, as well as objective-based training.

Promoting the active involvement of diverse human resources

The existence of diverse viewpoints and senses of values that reflect different experiences, technical skills, and attributes regardless of gender, nationality or other traits among employees is the strength that allows a company to continuously grow. We believe that active involvement of diverse human resources at Takara Bio is essential to achieving continued growth going forward.
